Crocus sativus bulbs of size 7/8
Crocus sativus bulbs of size 7/8 are the smallest bulbs in our sales range. These saffron bulbs each have a circumference between 7 and 8 centimeters, with a diameter between 2.23 and 2.55 centimeters.
The bulbs of this smallest size will not yet flower in the first year of planting, but because of their favorable pricing they are very suitable for setting up a perennial cultivation of saffron. During the growth cycle of 1 year, these bulbs will develop and multiply under normal conditions so that you can expect a minimum of 3 flowers per bulb in the following year.
Healthy and strong bulbs
Our Crocus sativus bulbs are grown in the most sustainable way with a minimal use of chemical crop protection. The bulbs are grown in the Netherlands on our fertile sandy soils with a rich soil life and a high humus content, resulting in strong bulbs with a high content of natural nutrients.
The Crocus sativus bulbs are classified as class 1 by the Dutch Flower bulbs Inspection Service (BKD).
The BKD is commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands to inspect and control the quality of all flower bulb crops in the Netherlands for both quality defects and quarantine pathogens.
